The park is beautiful and secluded. The water is really calm and it's nice to climb to the top of the dunes to get a higher up view of the place. There are no bathrooms or things of the like here, so plan accordingly. It's...More

This place is one of my favorite local spots. However, make sure you only park in the designated lot (only about 7 spots or so) otherwise you WILL get ticketed. It is a short and beautiful walk from the lot to the bluffs.... be prepared...More

Called "Pirates' Cove" by local teens this is a lovely spot in a somewhat hidden area. There is a small beach with surrounding dunes but no apparent facilities. Plan ahead to carry out trash etc. and note that the parking limitations are strictly enforced.

Checked out McAllister Park with the intention of hiking/walking but found that this was not possible at high tide. The cove is quite lovely and private but be aware that there is no beach to speak of at high tide, so no place to walk...More

What a gorgeous beach and bay. Lovely for a peaceful stroll watching the world go by and looking at two beaches at once from the top of the cove. We had no trouble parking when we turned up around 4.30pm on a pretty grey day....More
